SPORTS MASSAGE IN CANNINGTON
Sports massage is a targeted treatment to prevent and rehabilitate injuries incurred from your sporting or exercise regime. The technique involves using faster strokes and focuses on a group of muscles that are relative to your sport or activity. We employ a systematic manipulation of soft tissue which can also speed up the recovery time. Even if you’re not an avid sports player and have limited movement from an old injury then this type of massage can help improve flexibility.
Our dedicated and qualified massage therapists are on hand to provide you with a healing sports massage. Book an appointment at our massage clinic in Cannington today.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often should an athlete get a Sports Massage?
Most elite athletes get a minimum of one massage per week. For most amateur athletes who still take their sport and training seriously or for regular gym enthusiasts, once a week to once a fortnight is recommended. For most people who do regular, light exercise, once every two to four weeks is sufficient.
Is it best to get a Sports Massage before or after a workout?
Getting a sports massage before working out allows the muscles to get warmed up and stretched out. The sports massage would be carried out in such a way to suit the exercise you are about to undertake. Receiving a massage after a workout allows the body and muscles to relax a bit smoother and help prevent soreness.
Can I claim any health rebates from my Sports Massage?Health fund rebates are available when receiving a sports massage from a qualified remedial massage therapist. Depending on the level of your health cover, you may be eligible to claim money back.
We have a HealthPoint machine (similar to HI-CAPS) available so you can claim on-the-spot, allowing you to only bare the cost of the GAP payment. Please be mindful HealthPoint does not recognise all health fund providers, so it may be necessary for us to generate an invoice for you in which you can manually claim through your health care provider. We can provide your invoice either via email or print you a hard copy.
How do I prepare for a Sports Massage?
Prepare all relevant health information for the massage therapist.
Drink plenty of water to hydrate prior to your massage.
Take a lukewarm shower before your massage to loosen up your muscles and help put you into a relaxed state.
Wear loose and comfortable clothing to your massage appointment.
What does a Sports Massage do for me?
A sports massage works deep into the muscles, realigning the muscle fibres and connective tissue, as well as flushing away toxins. Regular massage sessions will increase joint mobility and flexibility and may further help in reducing the risk of injury during exercise.
